Thule Folding Uprights 520-1

 

The Thule 520-1 are a pair of uprights for carrying one or two kayaks vertically on their sides for reduced wind resistance while driving. This rack is suitable for use with all types of kayaks.

 

The uprights can be folded down flat when not in use to reduce the overall vehicle height and to reduce drag.

 

The Thule 520-1's side carrying design allows for space to also mount a narrow roof box or cycle carrier, perfect for holidays and day trips.

 

The Thule 520-1 is supplied with a T track adapter so that it can be fitted directly to the T track profile used on the Thule Aero, Wing and Slide Bars.

 

One pair of 2.75m Thule roof rack straps are supplied but If you are planning to carry two kayaks, you will need to buy a second pair of straps.

 

Note: If you are loading your kayak onto standard plastic coated bars, we suggest fitting roof bar pads for extra grip and padding. (T Track bars have a rubber strip that does this without additional padding)
